yeah, that makes sense. You are using ant as your workflow language for
image manip.

Actually I always thought about doing an image scale task for doing some of
my photo processing before publishing, and we do have an <imagediff> task
that takes two jpegs, diffs them into a jpeg to highlight differences, and
can throw a buildexception if the two images dont match. Regression testing
on the old SVG, see.
